Inauguration – one such historic moment for another Aquino

a new light and a beginning; a freedom and an escape; dreams merged from two visionaries; people hoping for a better point…a new revolution

A heroic odyssey to bands of yellow and eyeglass(es). Now took oath as the President of the Philippines, Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III had consistently used the color “yellow” to represent his and the Aquino legacy.

We had just come to a point that we must create such historic moment of putting Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, now President, as the highest ruling leader of the country.

Similar with the idealistic campaign of “CHANGE” by US President Obama, President Aquino himself and the Filipino people are now hoping that his administration will truly bring if not that considerable, but at least a distinct and evident change of what he promised during the election. With his campaign tag line: KUNG WALANG CORRUPT, WALANG MAHIRAP, he purposefully and somewhat subtly merged such idealism with “change,” so as not to look directly similar with the then candidate President Obama. Now that he took his turn and successfully influence a huge number of voters, ours is to support and celebrate such historic event….reinforce his advocacies; love him; negate his ideas and plans; create or make him through media; attempt to create a rally and even a coup; plan assassination (the same with the late Ninoy Aquino); create harsh and good criticisms on his administration; ….or we could just simply unite for one better “revolution!”

You chose him and so you have the freedom to recycle and re-invent our history….and we should just accept imperfections…we never know what’s in store for us under his administration…



100 years….the Centennial celebration begins today….Animo!

100 years…..they just started the Centennial countdown today…..Animo!

‘100 years of Lasallian presence in the Philippines’

I was never sure what ‘contemplate’ means until June 14th

It’s exactly 3 weeks from the last date of my employment and I’ll be officially completing my 1-year stay at that company.

It was a tough decision to leave the company (as this may always be the case) especially when you looked back and ponder all those bitter-sweet memories….and then with just one blink, you decided to let go and take a breathe.

It’s like a spur-of-the moment decision to file a letter, formally notifying the company that you’re leaving and your stay was pleasant and you enjoyed the support that the company has given you – of course, these were some of the cheesy lines that you’ll probably include in a letter. But the thing is, ARE YOU REALLY SURE THAT THIS IS WHAT YOU REALLY WANT?

On my last week, he told me ‘I’m giving you time to contemplate…’ but I was never sure what “contemplate” means until June 14th. I’ve heard this word once from one of my colleagues but never pay such time to look and understand the word, not until someone told me to do so (to contemplate) and then I pause for two days and kept on wondering what does that word mean – well, I read it myself and concluded that my decision is final.

1st June 2009 – until a year after….

I get to realized that this blog is no longer a mere “online journal” as I intended before rather, it seemed that it was a gallery of collective thoughts and memories – a sort of a paste board where you can post all the memories and things that you can perfectly (and partly) reminisce.

…and here I go again…it’s been a year since I  travel all the way to Eastwood Libis after being invited for my very first job interview. And after months of applying for my ideal jobs or should I say, career and after months of waiting for a job interview, finally, I hit off one luck of a lifetime!

Job hunting was such a painstaking task indeed!

And today, June 1st 2010 – it’s been a year since I finally got an invitation for a job interview and how ironic the situation is because I am currently rendering my last 30 days for my job where I initially landed to.
The thing may not be that painstaking as I am nearing to bade goodbye, but the thought that you’re “leaving for good” could be that sadder and harder part…
I finally decided…and I SHOULD leave for good!
